Tip 1: Check the Power

While it may sound ridiculous to some to even check this, one of the main reasons why a brand new CyberPowerPC won't turn on is because of the lack of power supply. So, it's in your best interest to double-check everything before going into panic mode.

There are several things you'll want to check:

  1. Test the power outlet you're using by connecting a different device to it;
  2. If you're using a surge protector, make sure it's switched on and properly connected to your PC and the outlet;
  3. Check your PC's power supply On/Off button.

Another thing you should keep in mind is that some computers have built-in protections against surges and outages that can prevent you from turning them on immediately after an outage. In this instance, wait for the cooldown period to end (up to 24 hours) after a power outage, then check if your computer will turn on.

Tip 2: Inspect All Cables and Wires

If everything seems fine with your power supply, you'll want to check the cables – even if they look brand new, they could be damaged.

Some of the things you'll want to do are:

  1. Check the length of each cable connected to your PC for damages;
  2. Disconnect and unplug all the cables for external peripherals, leaving only the power supply;
  3. If it turns on, plug back in one cable at a time to find the culprit;
  4. If nothing happens, try using a different power supply cable;
  5. As long as it doesn't void your warranty, you can open your unit, double-check all the internal wires and cables for damages, and ensure each is connected properly.

Moreover, you should check every connector and ensure all the pins look good. It's also a good idea to check the ports and outlets and clear them of any debris that might be causing connection issues.

Tip 3: Test Your Components

Though this might be a bit more advanced and could void your warranty, it could be a good idea to check each component of your PC and see if any of them are causing issues.

To do this, you'll want to:

  1. Open your unit;
  2. Remove the GPU and then the storage driver; <

  3. Unplug everything;
  4. Leave only the RAM stick inserted into the first slot on the motherboard; <

  5. Power on the motherboard;

Note: You'll want to be very careful when testing your components. You must disconnect and then reconnect everything properly. If you aren't confident enough to do this on your own, it's best to send your CyberPowerPC to a professional repair shop and have them do this for you.

Tip 4: Do a Hard Reset

If you've tested everything, double-checked the power supply, and even fiddled with individual components, and your CyberPower still won't turn on, your best course of action could be to perform a hard reset.

In a nutshell, a hard reset returns your hardware and all settings to their factory defaults. It can be an excellent solution if you've accidentally changed some configurations that are now causing issues.

To do a hard reset, you'll need to follow the next few steps:

  1. Turn off your CyberPowerPC (if it isn't already off);
  2. Disconnect the power cord and the AC adapter;
  3. If you have a laptop, remove its battery; <
    remove battery from cyberpowerpc laptop
  4. Disconnect all peripherals and external devices;
  5. Press and hold the power button for about 15 seconds;
  6. Reconnect the power cord, AC adapter, and battery.

Try to turn on your PC after completing these steps. If this doesn't work, there's one thing left for you to try.

Tip 5: Reset Your OS

If your computer turns on but doesn't properly boot up, you might be able to reset your Windows operating system. If you have Windows 10, it will boot you into the Windows Recovery Environment (known as WinRe) after your third attempt to boot up has failed.

From there, you can try resetting your OS:

  1. In WinRe, select Troubleshoot > Reset this PC;
    select troubleshoot
  2. Select Keep my files;
  3. Choose your user account (and if needed, type in your passcode);
  4. Select Reset.

Wait for Windows to reset. Hopefully, this should remove the glitch that's preventing your CyberPowerPC from booting up properly. If not, your best course of action would be to send your computer in for repair, but not before you've recovered all your essential data from it.
